The 37th Annual Western Australian Science Fiction and Fantasy Convention

Doomcon are pleased to announce the Art Show will once again be running at Swancon™! The Fan Art Show will run from Friday the 6th of April to 3pm Sunday the 8th of April, 2012. With Swancon™ now only a few months away, artists are encouraged to reserve space for their pieces by sending through a registration form or email. Payment for registrations must accompany the registration form. Judging of art work will be open from Friday through to the dinner break on Saturday evening, with Art show sales to take place after the lunch break on Sunday.

Works registered after 29th March 2012 might not find room at the Show. Although multiple entries are allowed, space is limited so we will accept entries on a first-come-first-served basis, and the organisers reserve the right to limit an artist to reasonable numbers of entries. There will be a separate children’s (Under 12) stream within the art show with its own judging.

Artists are asked to advise what their display requirements will be and whether their work will be sold. Please contact Linda to register your artwork. Actual submission of pieces will be advised closer to Swancon™. Artists are also asked to send through thumbnails of their work electronically, for the purpose of a catalogue.

You must state on the entry form if the piece is an original or a reproduction. Reproductions or prints from digitally created works are allowed, though only one copy of any particular piece may be hung. All work must be the original work of the artist. All reproduction rights remain the property of the artist. Works judged by the organisers to be offensive or libellous will not be permitted in the show. If you are in doubt as to whether your work is acceptable, please contact the organisers in advance. Swancon™ reserves the right to refuse any entry for any reason it sees fit.

Artists are responsible for organising their own insurance. Whilst the best of care will be taken at all times, Swancon will not accept liability for damages to your art work.

Financial Matters
The fee to enter the show is $5 per work except for Children’s Art or art entered for the purpose of fundraising, which will not be charged. These fees help to offset room, display, equipment and handling costs. Swancon™ will collect all sales revenue and distribute the proceeds to the artists by cash or cheque. Payments will be finalised no more than six weeks from the end of the convention. No commission will be charged by Swancon™. If you mail your artwork in and it is not sold or collected from the show, you must provide payment to cover the costs of return postage and ensure packaging is reusable.

Artists are responsible for their own insurance.

Fundraising by art sales
Works entered in the show for the purpose of fundraising are exempt from entry fees. Unless otherwise specified, it is the artist’s responsibility to distribute funds from sales. It is also the artist’s responsibility to label the work appropriately.
